You know how every day someone asks "how are you?" And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say "fine," so everyone can go about their day? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author and notable widow (her words) Nora McInerny, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and our humanness, which is not an actual word. From American Public Media.

Seriously the best podcast I have ever listened to.

Nora is amazing. The way she speaks about things is so meaningful and poetic. These episodes will touch you heart and make you laugh and cry at the same time! ❤️

The Best Podcast Ever

I have listened to every single episode of TTFA. It has really helped me feel validated in many experiences that I have been unable to talk about. This podcast has made a giant impact on my life. Plus, after listening, you will want Nora to be your BFF. I know I do!
